En Foco has digitized the archive of past Critical Mass (CM) Newsletters with the support of the Leonion Foundation. These newsletters had originally highlighted artists of the time while offering commentary on the social and cultural issues faced by artists of color. Currently, the CM archive contains 79 issues in varying conditions.
The CM archive is a unique repository of the socioeconomic, political, and cultural issues faced by artists of color. This is especially relevant today, as contemporary artists of color are still facing many of the same challenges, including exclusionary systems that often limit access to funding, education, and professional development support.
